As they actually have to produce the stuff to set it free, that is not a plausible scenario.
You must do IT consulting. While satisfying as a business strategy, I guess it limits revenue.
Sure, and there are no other radio technologies. Or fibers. Or wires. Or lasers.
As in any good police state, if the police does not like you, the relevant US police force will just shoot you in your home and either claim they had the wrong address, or place some drugs or hints of terror-support. Bricking phones is for children.
Indeed. So it needs to be the same on both.
Really? You as a question this stupid with an answer this obvious and expect to be taken seriously?
With a good Gaussian distribution (which we have here), it matters little. Some people of course do not have the smarts to deal with things like context or problem parameters.
My guess is some people that are stupid and self-destructive enough that they just do not care. Some parts of the human race really do not deserve to live.
I found the same when I started to take meeting-notes on my laptop. They were too long, not clear enough, and worst of all, I did not remember them. Went back to pen&paper and the problem went away. It is also far easier taking notes that way, as you are not working 1.5D but true 2D (remarks, arrows, etc.)
It does not matter at all for entertainment. All these studies target e-learning in the final consequence though, as some people believe that is the future. (I don't think so. I think learning is difficult and no amount of putting "e-" into it is going to change that.)
Same here. No difference at all for entertainment literature.
25 each is too small a study to be sure, this could be a statistical anomaly. It is also possible that they had A4 sheets for the paper version while smaller pages on the Kindle that cannot display that much text at one go. Unless they give them a proper small paperback for comparison, they could have a lot of sources of error. Also, the information how well they did is missing. The given data would fit 2 getting it right on paper and one just on Kindle.
The one issue I have with the Kindle is that reading technical books does not work too well. For them, I pencil in remarks and highlights, and the Kindle functionality for that is not really usable. Also, technical books often have formulas and pictures which do not work too well either. Still useful to carry around reference material and I would not want an A4-sized Kindle either. But a pencil-like interface for annotations and some other improvements are needed before I will go all e-book.
And the average person is not very smart in the first place. This news item just describes one of the consequences.
Well, if you are willing to commit fraud and other crimes, of course you can make money. You can also go to prison if caught.
The use itself must go on his tax form. A company car has to be declared. At the value and value-declination of a 500SL, this could net him a year or two in prison if not.
Stop trying your simplistic example and admit it was either inaccurate or made up.
Their business is going well. Why would they care about their customers? Of course, if ever a real alternative comes along (or they cannot bribe enough people anymore), quite a few people will never look back.
